Episode 83: Off Course

Off Course

Fed up with the uselessness of their degrees and swayed by a TV commercial, two Spaniards head to Berlin for work but find it not quite as advertised.

IMDb

If you thought the American post-millennial generation was hopeless, wait till you see how bad Spaniards of the same age are suffering from illusory superiority. A cabal of globalists attempting to destabilize western society and infrastructure with a Star Wars Empire styled 4th reich led my Chancellor Merkel, also known as the European Union, trick our heroes into moving to Berlin with promises of employment. Upon arriving, the boys discover that Berlin is a literal hell-hole folks. Their big beautiful wall was knocked down and the city has been renamed "New Turkey." Their bachelors and masters degrees only grant them falafel-flipping jobs and that's where the incredibly sad-but-true politically charged part of the movie stops and a stale romantic comedy begins. The movie could have taken an inspiring turn when the president of the United States saved the world and brought back jobs to Europe, etc. but instead it's just awkward fart jokes and uncomfortably impossible social situations. Yawn! After the news, we're rambling about Despicable Me 3, Baby Driver, and Spider-Man: Homecoming. Next week, we're watching Lessons of Darkness.
